Phylogenetic placement of Arrowinini trib.n. within the subfamily Staphylininae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae), with revision of the relict South African genus Arrowinus and description of its larva
Abstract.  The rove beetle genus Arrowinus, a flightless endemic of South Africa, is revised. Arrowinus phaenomenalis Bernhauer, the type species of the genus, is redescribed based on an examinationExpand

Early evolution of the hyperdiverse rove beetle tribe Staphylinini (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Staphylininae) and a revision of its higher classification
The rove beetle tribe Staphylinini (Staphylinidae: Staphylininae) is a monophyletic lineage of over 5500 relatively large and charismatic species, yet its higher classification remains deeply rootedExpand
